Muhammadu Buhari, the President of Nigeria, wants you to be rest assured he is not a clone.

But isn't that just what a clone would say?


As though it is not hard enough to run a country, President Buhari also has to deal with the nagging problem that people around the world think he died and was replaced by a Sudanese clone.

Good thing a United States President never had to deal with outlandish rumors while trying to do his job.

Oh wait...

The truth is Buhari was in the UK recovering from an unknown illness.

As crazy as it seems, Buhari still needed to address the clone rumors while in Poland on Sunday.



In his talk he is heard saying:

"It's the real me, I assure you. I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go strong
A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health."
"Some even reached out to the Vice President to consider them to be his deputy because they assumed I was dead."
"That embarrassed him a lot and of course, he visited me when I was in London convalescing."

Even so, people had doubts.
